Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We are a people who have been transformed by the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, God has forgiven us and adopted us into his family. Now, we have a whole new life.
Through the gospel, God redeems us, forgives us, and adopts us into his family. The good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection makes each one of us a new creation and gives us a new identity: children of God. This is why we can never think of the church as an organization or a building. The church is actually a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children.
Through the gospel, God forgives us, adopts us into his family, and makes us his disciples. This means that the church is not just any family. We are a family formed by God—and sent out with a purpose.
The church is a family that ministers to one another, cares for one another, and builds one another up. Each member of the family is a child of God who is uniquely gifted to bless the family and to be a light in our city.
Just like a vine grows best with a good trellis, our church family grows best with good programs. Our programs and ministries are tailored to support the community and mission God has given us.
“Materialism and consumerism aren’t just cultural phenomenons, they’re a false religion.”
“God has a profound heart for the poor and the marginalized, and if we are going to follow Him as our Lord and Savior, we must reflect that same heart.”
“The most basic truth regarding money and possessions that we need to be regularly reminded of is the fact that God owns everything.”
Jesus talked about money a lot. Yet, for many of us, we struggle to figure out how God wants us to handle the money he has entrusted to us.
“The basics of personal finance are important because of how tied our money is to our hearts. And as we grow to become more and more like Christ, addressing our hearts inevitably involves addressing our finances.”
"Like the wandering Israelites who had nothing when they awoke, but knew God would shower them with honey-flavored bread in a moment, I need to trust that He will provide."
"What appears to be the greatest defeat of Jesus Christ becomes His greatest victory and the crux of His salvation; so too for us when we suffer for doing good."
